I'm proud of my accomplishments

I was so proud when I learnt how to tie my shoe laces. That was one of my first accomplishments I was so proud of. Later, ability to read, play musical instruments, run on marathons and dance like John Travolta. Teenage years and years in university are the best times for political and social activity. I have joined many parties at that time, one was called “Freedom for colored people” and another “Let your wives work”. I was sent on business trips every so often. I was even elected to be the head of student government.

Seeing my friends get medals and certificates would make me envious. It was the best stimulus for me. Just the thought that somebody else is doing better in chemistry would keep me in the library more than a coffee. So a month later I would do better than many people in the class. When nobody is competing with me I loose my interest. The accomplishments are good only when somebody challenges me or I have a competitor. I would never date a guy whom girls don’t even mentioned. I challenged myself to get the best guy in the area and when he looked too busy to date it became even more interesting. Now he is mine and next to him another check mark.

Although I haven’t done much in this life, now when I’m sick and I might have a surgery I am proud of only one accomplishment in my life. It is having my child. It was one of the most pleasurable and hardest experiences that I had. You realize that miracles happen and the biggest one of them is the birth of a human child. So I have accomplished the biggest reason of life. The cycle of life is almost completed for me and it made me remember that many people are not able to complete that one biggest accomplishment of their life

I do not understand how having a child completes your life circle girlfriend? This kid has so many achievements and goals that s gotta be completed and you gotta be there, and that surely is going to be the end of your life like you knew it and mark the beginning of sth called mother and child relation that is like a walmart store, always open 7/24... :)
After school, love and lust wars, career etc comes the miracle of life and that is our kids.. they are something like an empty blackboard that we shape up, this is very cool but at the same time requires a lot of consistency, discipline and PATIENCE!
Being a mom is the best thing that has happened to me and made me a better person, also gives me the strength to carry on each day to be a better mom and an employee, a friend, a daughter etc etc.
